Default Throttle cable came apart......

Don't undo that nut I said...

Shortly after that, my mate found a partially disassembled RV12 Mcfarlane throttle cable on the bench.

So...

Does anyone have a quick fix to reassemble the friction part with the 6 teeny, tiny rollers in and stuff it all back down the tube please ?

He should be out of ER by Wednesday

It can be done. I speak from experience.

That must be a rite of passage for RV-12 builders. It happened on our Brighton Build-a-Plane RV-12 last year. The kid that did it got to do the research and figure out how to put it back together. It also taught him to heed “DO NOT DISSASSEMBLE” warning tags.

I, too, lost a roller when I pulled too hard. McFarlane kindly send me three more.
